    Interviews with Pete or Non-Teen Items:

  1. Excerpts from the Playbill of the off-Broadway play Take Her, She's Mine, in which Pete had a small role, 1964. The playbill contains 30 photos, but Pete is only in the very last one.
  2. Excerpts from Take Her, She's Mine, the play in which Pete appeared in 1964. This was kindly prepared by Brendacious, who provides information on the play and the dialogue of scenes in which Pete appeared. It has been left in Microsoft Word format (as Brendacious provided) so that it would be more readable. You'll need Microsoft Word to open this.
  3. "Face in the Mirror. Pete Deuel: Gidget's Brotherly Brother-in-law", TV Radio Mirror, May 1966. Face in the Mirror was a one page profile that appeared in each issue.

  5. "Preview: 'Love on a Rooftop'", Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, TV Weekly, July 24, 1966. This is the second oldest interview with Pete on the website. Some of Pete's comments about Love on a Rooftop also apply to AS&J.

  7. "Love on a Rooftop", TV Guide, ca. September 1966. New show write-up for the series, plus an ad for the new short. Courtesy of Cynthialil.
  8. Short item on Love on a Rooftop, unknown newspaper, 1966. Thanks to Cynthialil.
  9. "Deuel in the Sun", TV Photo Story, October 1966. An early interview with Pete, which includes a couple of interesting and rare photos.
  10. Excerpts from "Judy Carne--Brash, Confident, SCARED!", TV Guide, October 15, 1966. I have the complete article but only statements about or said by Pete are given here.

  12. "On Location with Love on a Rooftop", Detroit Free Press Weekly TV Magazine, November 27, 1966. Includes some interesting color photos.
  13. "Love Deuel", TV Radio Mirror, December 1966. The magazine index titles this as "All the Girls Love Pete". A photo shoot with starlet Indus Arthur.
  14. Production Notes, "Love on a Rooftop", Screen Gems, 1966. Thanks to Dawn.
  15. "$65 Apartment for Young Star", unknown newspaper, 1966 or 1967. United Press International interview with Pete. Sent by Ana.
  16. "Barefoot Boy", Glendale News Press TV Week, January 28, 1967. This great article comes to us from Wendy. For larger versions of the two photos that show the most detail in Pete's apartment, click here and here.
  17. "judy carne & peter deuel: the love-hate syndrome", TV Radio Annual, 1967.
  18. "Love on a Rooftop's Peter Deuel 'At 20 I Picked a Girl of 13 for My Wife'", TV Radio Mirror, January 1967. It's obvious that this was before Pete had much experience with interviews. The article's photo is a reverse image. Click here to see it in the correct orientation.
  19. "Review: Love on a Rooftop", TV Guide, January 7, 1967. A review by critic Cleveland Amory. Click here to see a photo of Pete from an ABC ad in this issue of TV Guide.
  20. "The Fan Letters I Answer First!", Movieland and TV Time, February 1967. Includes many quotes from Pete. Sent by Ana.
  21. Excerpt from "A Party for Bobby", Movieland and TV Time, February 1967. Short item on Pete.
  22. "Peter Duele [sic]: 'It Happened Just Like That--POW!'", TV and Movie Screen, February 1967. The writer spelled his name right; the title typesettist did not. This must have been one of Pete's first interviews. There are lots of interesting photos here, but they will take a while to load. At the time these photos were taken, Pete and the girl in the photos, Indus Arthur, shared the same agent.
  23. "Four Lonely Bachelors", TV Inside Movie, February 1967. Only the Peter Deuel section given here. The cover photo has a reverse image of Pete. Click here to see it flipped to the correct orientation. Thanks to Asialee.
  24. "Peter Deuel: He Kisses The Girls And Makes Them Cry", Modern Screen, March 1967. A long interview with Pete. Two articles in one: happy-go-lucky 20-something bachelor and suicidal teenager (chilling!). The photo is a reverse image. Click here to see it in the correct orientation.
  25. "Deuel with Death", Movie World, March 1967. An interview where Pete discusses his potentially fatal traffic accidents and his love of aviation.
  26. "Gossip/Gossip/Gossip" and "The Scientific Matchmaker", TV and Movie Screen, March 1967. It's probable that Pete and Sally met while working on Gidget rather than at a party. Although Pete and Sally were in the main photo for an article on computer dating, they weren't mentioned in the article and I seriously doubt that they were paired up by a computer.
  27. "Lovers on roof-top: Judy Carne, Peter Deuel", TV News (Indianapolis, IN), March 11, 1967.
  28. "Why There's NO LOVE Off That Rooftop!", TV Photo Story, April 1967. An interview with Pete and Judy Carne.
  29. "Peter Deuel Confesses: Gidget may marry her sister's husband!", TV Star Parade, April 1967. Sent by Ana.
  30. "Six Guys with Girl Trouble", Photo TV Land, April 1967. A cool photo of Pete with socks. The girl in one of the photos is probably actress Katherine Crawford, who is the daughter of AS&J executive producer Roy Huggins.
  31. "'Divorce' On A Rooftop!", Photo TV Land, April 1967. An interview with Pete and Judy Carne.
  32. "Hot Off The Press! The Torch Burns Bright. Sally Field-Peter Deuel", TV and Movie Screen, April 1967.
  33. Excerpt from "Gossip! Gossip! Gossip!", TV and Movie Screen, April 1967. Mr. Fats? If studio officials thought that too, no wonder Pete ended up so thin by 1969 (e.g., his The Virginian "Price of Love" appearance).
  34. Excerpts from columns, TV Picture Life, April 1967. WAIF stands for World Adoption International Fund, which was founded by actress Jane Russell in the 1950s.
  35. "Judy Carne and Peter Deuel: They Love On......and Off That Rooftop", Silver Screen, May 1967. The article is primarily about Judy, but there is some text on Pete and some great photos of the two of them. (I've placed most photos after the text.)
  36. "Judy Carne and Peter Deuel: Kiss or Kill!", Screen Stories, May 1967. Talks about how they get along on the set of Love on a Rooftop. The page seam runs through the picture.
  37. "Love is a Crazy Cycle", TV Radio Mirror, May 1967. The original magazine had 3 pages of pictures, so this may take a while to load. I think that it will be worth the wait.
  38. "Peter Deuel: Confesses: I'm in Love with an Older Woman Who has Two Children", Photoplay, May 1967. An interview with Pete discussing his relationship with Jill Andre.
  39. Excerpt from "What's New? Eunice Field's Hollywood", TV Radio Mirror, May 1967. A paragraph and photo about Pete.
  40. "The Latest Love Score: INSTANT FAMILY!", Movieland and TV Time, May 1967. Essentially a photo and caption.

  44. Excerpt from "TV's Lonely Bachelors", Photo TV Land, June 1967. Only the Peter Deuel section is given here.
  45. "Peter Deuel: 'Don't Dare Me--I May Do It!'", Movie Life, June 1967. A long and interesting interview with Pete. (It's probably the longest interview on the website.)
  46. "The Unhitchables: Peter Deuel", Movie TV Secrets, July 1967. Other bachelors in this article were Lee Majors, Adam West, Ron Ely, and Chris George. It appears that by 1971 the second sentence under the Peter Deuel subheading was no long applicable.
  47. "Peter Deuel 'I Have to be the Best' So what else would you expect with parents like these?", Motion Picture, August 1967. A nice interview where Pete talks about his home life.
  48. Excerpt from "The Male Point of View Part 2: 8 H'Wood Bachelors Tell 'What I Want from a Woman'", Movie Stars, August 1967. Only the section with quotes from Pete is given here.
  49. "Peter Dueul [sic]: 'I Even Thought I'd Kill Myself!", Screen Parade, August 1967. Chilling!
  50. "Peter Deuel: A Case of Father Knew Best", Rochester Democrat and Chronicle TV Tab, August 13, 1967. Click here to see an expanded and clearer version of the photo.
  51. Excerpt from "Special Hollywood Report! How the Top Stars Feel About LSD, Divorce...and Alcoholism", TV and Screen World, September 1967. Short, but with a quote from Pete. They didn't ask every question to every star. Needless to say, no one spoke favorably towards LSD, divorce, or alcholism.
  52. "'I'm Everybody's Sister But Nobody's Girlfriend'", Movieland and TV Time, October 1967. An interview with Sally Field during a period when she was dating Pete. There are many photos, which I've placed at the end. Unfortunately, none are of Pete. Thanks to Jacquie and to Mary.
  53. Excerpt from "Sally Field's Problems with Men", Modern Screen, October 1967. A very short excerpt where Sally mentions Pete.
  54. Excerpt from "The Flirty Dozen: 12 Eligible Bachelors Tell Why They Plan to Stay That Way", Movie TV Secrets, November 1967. The Pete section is given here.
  55. Excerpt from "Why Sally Field Can't Fall In Love Now", TV Radio Show, December 1967. Just the quotes from Pete are given here.
  56. "TV Favorites: Peter Deuel", Photoplay Album, 1968. Even in the original magazine, it isn't clear what Pete is feeding Sally.
  57. "28549-98", February 1968. A publicity photo for "The Good Hearted Badman", an episode of The Virginian in which Pete guest-starred. Thanks to Jeane.
  58. "Peter Deuel Y Su 'Nidito De Amor' En La Playa", TeleGuia, March 1968.
    Two full page scans in Spanish from a Santiago, Chile magazine. It isn't clear that Pete and Indus Arthur had a real life romance, but they did share the same agent (Ray Powers) who booked them on publicity photo shoots such as this.
  59. "Peter Deuel and His Little Love Nest", TeleGuia, March 1968. Thanks to Gilly, the English translation of the Spanish article above.
  60. "Actor Campaigning Here", Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, June 17, 1968. Includes quotes from Pete. Thanks to Ana.
  61. "Did You Know? Postponed!", Movieland and TV Time, September 1968. A photo and caption on Pete and girlfriend Beth Griswold.
  62. "The Hell with Heroes", Screen Stories, September 1968. A long synposis of the movie. Unfortunately, Pete's name is not mentioned (but he is in one photo). He played the role of Mike Brewer.
  63. "Marriage: Now, Wait a Minute Says Deuel", Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, June 8, 1969. Newspaper article on Pete's romance with Generation co-star Kim Darby. Sent by Ana.
  64. Excerpt from "Where has all the glamor gone? Hollywood's New Style Setters??!!", TV and Movie Screen, July 1969. How do you like this outfit?
  65. "Suddenly It's Fun to Be Kim Darby", Motion Picture, November 1969. Missing some text, but has interesting photos of Pete. I made the last two pictures big so that you could get a good look at the goatee.
  66. "The Strange, Lonely World of Kim Darby", Modern Screen, November 1969. The last third of this discusses her relationship with Pete.
  67. "Kim Darby: All Wrapped Up in the Wrong Man", Modern Movies, November 1969. This writer has strange ideas about what is "bad"--but then she can't even spell Deuel (or perhaps Duel, by that time) correctly. Also, while this article said that John Wayne and Kim were friends, in several interviews Kim said that Wayne treated her with no respect on True Grit and that they did not get along well.
  68. Poster from Press Packet for the movie A Time for Giving (aka Generation), 1969. The files are big in order to keep the text readable. Sent by Dawn.
  69. "Career Breakthrough for Peter Duel", Press Packet for A Time for Giving, 1969. Insightful and sad. From Dawn.
  70. "Kim Darby, Peter Duel Discover Each Other for 'A Time for Giving'", Press Packet for A Time for Giving, 1969. From Dawn.
  71. "The Story in Six Pictures", Press Packet for A Time for Giving, 1969. From Dawn.
  72. "A Hairy Problem is Solved!", Press Packet for A Time for Giving, 1969. From Dawn.
  73. Ad Sheet for Generation, 1969. This a sheet that was sent to newspapers for use in producing their ads. It's too bad that Pete's name wasn't more prominently featured in the ads.
  74. "Love is the answer to a lonely heart!", Movie Mirror, 1969 or 1970. An interview with Kim Darby, during the period she was dating Pete. Thanks to a fan in the UK.

  76. "Gloom, Doom and Love: An Actor's Concerns", Rochester Times Union, January 16, 1970. Newspaper interview at Pete's parents' house. From Ana.

  85. "Kim Darby: Why She Can't Keep Her Hands Off Leading Men", Photoplay, April 1970. The main leading man in question is Pete.
  86. "Kim Darby: A Surprise Wedding!", Photoplay, April 1970. Yes, in the same magazine issue as the article above. They must have put this together fast--it isn't even in the index.
  87. "Peter Duel Has My Sympathy", Silver Screen, May 1970. Title is a quote from Kim Darby's new husband. From Ana.
  88. "Kim Darby Defends Her Hasty Second Marriage: "I've Never Been More Sure of Anything in My Whole Life!", Screen Stories, May 1970. Discusses Pete briefly and includes a photo from Generation.

  95. Excerpt from "Kim Darby/Bruce Davison: Free Ride To A Lover's Eden!", Movie Mirror, October 1970. Not much on Pete, but tells more of the story about Kim. I've only included enough here to give you the jest of the story. In the same magazine, there's a gossip column item saying that Kim had also started dating her first husband, Jim Stacy, again after her second marriage failed.
  96. "The Psychiatrist", unknown newspaper, December 16, 1970. A review, from a writer with a unique way with words. Thanks to Ana.

  105. "Pete's Not Convinced He's Lucky", New York Sunday News, April 25, 1971. Sinister looking? The microfiche print that I have ends in mid-sentence. A column of the article must not have been printed out. Does anyone out there know what the rest of this says?
  106. Excerpt from "It's Double-Exposure Week", The Philadelphia Inquirer, May 9, 1971. A photo and caption with Judy Carne.
  107. "He's Alias Smith or Alias Jones--but either way it's not the image that seems to fit Pete Duel", TV Guide, May 15, 1971. An interesting interview with Pete, courtesy of Lisa.
  108. "Alias Pete Duel & Ben Murphy: Outlaws On the Lookout for In-Laws! Why They Both Need To Get Married", TV Family, June 1971. Two of the Heyes photos were reverse images which I flipped. The author is apparently unaware of Pete's co-starring role in Love on a Rooftop and of his girlfriend Diane Ray.
  109. Ad for "Gidget", Syracuse Herald Journal, June 6, 1971. Sent by Alice.
  110. "Personal Life Stories of Your Fav Stars", TV-Movie Pin-Ups, July 1971. Just the Pete and Ben sections here. The same write-ups appeared in the October 1971 issue of this magazine.

  113. "The Real Smith and Jones", 'TEEN Magazine, August 1971. 'TEEN's celebrity editor went on a date with Ben and they talked with Pete. Moderately sappy. 'TEEN is not a teenage fan magazine--it is more like a LADIES HOME JOURNAL for teenagers. The author later became a celebrity photographer, had an affair with Cary Grant, and wrote a tell-all biography about Grant after his death.
  114. "He Carries the World on his Shoulders", Motion Picture, September 1971. A very interesting interview with Pete. However, to fit the text, the writer has chosen photographs where Pete wasn't smiling. For both photos in this article, other similar shots (published elsewhere) have him smiling.
  115. "Pete Duel & Ben Murphy Confess: 'We Don't Believe in Marriage!' Why They Still Get 100 Proposals a Week!", Screen Mirror, September 1971. Sent by Ana.

  120. "How National Guardsmen with Bayonets Took the Blinkers Off Pete", Radio Times, November 4, 1971. Thorne sent the text and Angela sent the photo.
  121. "Personal Life Stories of All the Top Stars", TV-Movie Pin-Ups, December 1971. Only the paragraphs on Pete and Ben are here. Pete also had one of the featured articles (below), while the big picture of Ben is a one-page photo pin-up.
  122. "Pete Duel: Living It Up in a Bachelor Paradise", TV-Movie Pin-Ups, December 1971. Hindsight suggests that the first two paragraphs were overstated. However, after that there are some nice quotes from Pete. The page seam runs through the photo.
  123. Transcript of Pete and Ben's appearance on The Merv Griffin Show, December 3, 1971. This was prepared for us by Electra, who saw the show herself back in 1971.
  124. "Pete Duel: 'Series Big Drag to Actor'", Los Angeles Times, December 9, 1971. A short interview with Pete.
  125. Ad for "How to Steal an Airplane", Syracuse Herald Journal, December 10, 1971. Again, thanks to Alice.

  131. "'Scarecrow' Marks Duel's Final Drama", unknown newspaper, January 9, 1972. Thanks to Alice.
  132. "Pete Duel & Diane Ray: They're Trying to Save Their Love", Motion Picture, February 1972. A long interview with Pete, which is interesting but downbeat. There are many photos, which were probably taken at the 1970 premiere of Ah Man... See What You've Done, an ecology documentary that Pete narrated for free. Sent by kc.
  133. "What is Pete Duel Afraid of?", 'TEEN Magazine, February 1972. The snippy title refers to the fact that Pete didn't like to do interviews. Although geared to teenagers, this is a reasonably good interview--better than many in the adult-oriented magazines. This issue was received at my home on 1/3/72. Pete died on 12/31/71. The page seam is running down the center of the photo.
  134. Excerpt from "Hollywood's Sexiest Bachelors", Movie Stars, February 1972. Only the Pete and Ben sections are given here.

  147. "Love on a Rooftop", Television Age, All About "Alias Smith and Jones" (Japanese), issue 4, 1978. At the bottom of this is a very, very odd sentence in poor English. It's the only English sentence in the entire magazine. Don't you wonder what this is referring to?

  149. "Gidget", The Complete Encyclopedia of Television Programs, 1979. Thanks to Alice.

  241. "Pete Duel", Superstar, March 1972.

  251. "teens NOW! Stage", teens NOW!, July 1972. Based on the short length of those sideburns, I wouldn't say that this was one of Pete's last photos.
  252. "Remembering Pete & Ben", UK magazine, 1973. Thanks to Debbie, who went to great efforts on this since the picture is a large poster that was scanned in pieces.
    Poetry or Tributes by and for Pete:
  253. "Life", a poem by Peter Deuel, written in 1956. This was read at his funeral in Penfield.
  254. "Please Hear What I'm Not Saying", a poem that was rumored to have been written byPete in 1957 at age 17. The most current information indicates that this was written by Charles C. Finn in 1966. Still, Pete gave this poem to an interviewer in the late 1960s or early 1970s and it appears that he identified with the sentiments. Sent by Pamela G.
  255. "Love", a poem by Pete in 1965. Also donated by Pamela G. This includes an audio file (in wav format) that I made from a tape sent by another generous fan.
  256. "Glen Canyon Eulogy" , a poem by Pete. (I don't know the year.) This includes an audio file from a tape sent by a UK fan.

  263. "Letters to Pete", Rona Barrett's Hollywood, August 1972. Letters and poems from fans, along with photos of Pete. The cover of the magazine calls this "Pete Duel's Last Love Letters". Thanks to Asialee.

  266. "The Alias Smith and Jones Story, Part 2", Superstar, July 1972. Primarily an article about Pete's life, with some quotes from Ben and Pete. It's well-established that Pete did not like being stuck in a TV series, but that does not mean that he disliked the character of Hannibal Heyes. Thanks to Asialee.
  267. Letters from "Flipflap", flip, August 1972. Letters from readers about Pete continue into the August issue. flip was unique among the U.S. teen magazines because they didn't drop all discussion of Pete after a brief article on his death in the April or May issues.

  269. "Pete Duel: The Birth of a Legend", Superstar, February 1973. Taking exception to this article's first sentence: there was no real western outlaw named Hannibal Hayes [sic] and the activities of Jesse James and Billy the Kid should not, in my opinion, classify them as heroes. Sent by Asialee.
  270. "FAB Remembers Pete Duel", FAB 208 1973. Scans of two complete magazine pages.
  271. "And I Would Be Loving You Still", a poem for Pete, written in 1999 by Judith.

    Articles on Pete's Death:
  275. "Peter Duel Killed by Gunshot", Rochester Times Union, December 31, 1971. From Gail's local afternoon paper.
  276. "Duel Interests Went Far Beyond Acting", Rochester Times Union, December 31, 1971. A companion piece to the article above. Since Pete was a native of the Rochester area, this includes quotes obtained from him during their local interviews. Also thanks to Gail.
  277. "Star Gun Victim: Duel Found Dead in Hollywood", probably from the Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, December 31, 1971. With some inaccuracies, but longer than most of the very early articles on Pete's death. Thanks to Ana.
  278. "Police Probe Shooting Death of TV Star", St. Paul Dispatch, December 31, 1971. From Carolyn W.
  279. "Television Star Pete Duel Found Shot to Death", Missouri newspaper, December 31, 1971. From statetrav.
  280. "TV Western Star Found Shot Dead", unknown newspaper, December 31, 1971. From KathStath.
  281. "Peter Duel's Death A 'Probable Suicide'", Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, January 1, 1972. From Gail's local morning paper.
  282. "Peter Duel, Actor, Found Shot Dead in Home on Coast", New York Times, January 1, 1972. A short AP article. Some evening papers carried this on December 31, 1971.
  283. "TV's Pete Duel Found Shot; Suicide 'Probable'", Los Angeles Times, January 1, 1972. Considering that this happened in their own territory, I would have expected a better article. This is from microfiche, so the photo quality is poor.
  284. "Gunshot Kills TV's Peter Duel", Chicago Tribune, January 1, 1972. UPI article.
  285. "Actor's Death Probably Suicide", Salisbury (NC) Post, January 1, 1972. A longer AP story.
  286. "TV Actor Shoots Himself", The Times (London), January 1, 1972. From Thorne.
  287. "'Alias Smith' found shot after seeing his TV show", Daily Mail, January 1, 1972. From Thorne and Ana.
  288. "Could I Haved Saved My Friend Hannibal Hayes?", The Sun, January 1, 1972. A UK tabloid newspaper article, sent by Thorne. "She ran downstairs..."? From where? The attic?
  289. "Death Notice: Deuel, Peter", Los Angeles Times, January 1, 1972. Thanks to Marilyn.
  290. "Hollywood Rites Today. Duel Death Classed as Suicide", San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle, January 2, 1972. From Marilyn. "Happy-go-lucky" does not seem like the appropriate adjective for Pete.
  291. "TV Actor Shot to Death", Australian Associate Press, January 2 or 3, 1972. Sent by Peta.
  292. "Pete Duel Death Probable Suicide; Probe Continues", Variety, January 3, 1972. Thanks to Pat.
  293. Article on Pete's death, Daily Express, early January 1972. A UK newspaper article, courtesy of Thorne.
  294. Article on Pete's death, Daily Mirror, early January 1972. From Thorne. This is not very accurate. Most notably, Pete did not call Diane into the room before shooting himself. The reason for posting this article is to illustrate a point: There is much erroneous information about Pete's death among fans. This is sometimes due to faulty memories after 30 years. However, as this article shows, some bad info is because reports that fans read in 1972 were inaccurate.
  295. Excerpt from a newspaper article, Dallas Morning News, January 4, 1972. Thanks to Joni. Based on the articles on this website, I think that this article is incorrect in stating that Ben received most of the publicity for the show.
  296. "Smith and Jones--Without Smith", column by Cecil Smith, Los Angeles Times, January 5, 1972. This is not entirely accurate. Both Roger Davis and Roy Huggins have denied that Roger (not Pete) was Huggins' original choice for Heyes. Also, Huggins didn't create the AS&J pilot; Glen Larson did with Frank Price as executive producer. An aside: Mark Kalesniko's 1997 graphic novel "Why Did Pete Duel Kill Himself?" compared Pete to "Richard Cory" of the Edwin Arlington Robinson poem. This wasn't an original thought--Cecil Smith did it here, 25 years earlier.
  297. Transcript of a short memorial to Pete by a Rochester, NY TV station, aired January 5, 1972. The film that goes with this narration shows snowy scenes from Penfield including the funeral home, the Deuel house, family and friends arriving at the church for the funeral, the inside and outside of the church, the school Pete attended, and the Four Corners area of Penfield.
  298. "Duel Described as Don Quixote", Penfield Post Republican, January 6, 1972. An article from Pete's hometown newspaper. Sent by Ana.

The writer was the entertainment reporter for the Syracuse Herald Journal, a major newspaper in Pete's native upstate New York. Thanks to Alice.
  302. "Extolled by Friends: 'Success Did Not Spoil Pete Duel'", Los Angeles Herald-Examiner, early January 1972. Sent by Ana.
  303. "Duel's Self-Appraisal: 'I'm Man in a Turmoil'", unknown newspaper probably in Los Angeles, shortly after Pete's death. Includes short quotes that Pete had given the writer during interviews. Thanks to Ana.
  304. "Asesinato O Suicidio? El Actor Pete Duel Aparecio Muerto En Su Casa", Lecturas, 14.1.72-1030. Thanks to Ana.
  305. "Murder or Suicide? The Actor Pete Duel Was Found Dead At Home", Lecturas, 14.1.72-1030. English translation, thanks to Elaine, of the above Spanish article. The article is somewhat lacking in accuracy--for example, Pete was 31 and his brother Geoff starred in Chisum.
  306. "Murio un 'mosquetero'", Spanish newspaper, early January 1972. Short with Spanish and English included here. Sent by Ana with translation by Elaine. The English title is "One of the Muskeeters Has Died". The Spanish title for AS&J translates into "The Two Muskeeters".

  308. Excerpt from "It's Happening in Hollywood", Tiger Beat, March 1972. Short quotes from Pete published after his death.
  309. "Pete Duel", Spanish newspaper or magazine, March 14, 1972. This is very short, with both Spanish and English included here. Sent by Ana and translated by Elaine.

  311. Excerpt from "Walter Scott's Personality Parade", Parade Magazine, 1972. From a question and answer column, in addition to the question about Pete another interesting question is included. Parade is a magazine supplement for Sunday newspapers; it's still around today. Thanks to Joni.
  312. Excerpt from "It's Happening in Hollywood", Tiger Beat, April 1972. Discusses Pete's death and includes quotes from a recent interview with him.
  313. "Only We Have The Tragic Story! Peter Duel's Last Moments! 'He Cried for Help and No One Came!'", TV Radio Show, April 1972. This focuses on issues troubling Pete in late 1971.

However, they certainly didn't talk to Pete's mother--although I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to do so. This does include a brief quote from a high school friend.
  316. "Why Peter Duel Took His Life", Photoplay, April 1972. The main photos, with captions, are after the text.
  317. "Exclusive! The True Story Behind Pete Duel's Death", Motion Picture, April 1972.
  318. "Duel Tragedy", TV Radio Talk, April 1972. A part of the monthly column by Army Archerd. Includes quotes, after Pete's death, from Roy Huggins and Shirley Jones. From Ana.
  319. "Pete Duel's Confession from Beyond the Grave!", TV Picture Life, April 1972. The "confession" is quotes from an interview with Pete gave shortly before his death. This is one of Pete's last long interviews and it is written from the hindsight of his death. For example, the main photo seems to have been chosen because it suggests angst. In reality, it is from a 1967 photo shoot were Pete was concentrating while changing a spark plug on his motorcycle.
  320. "Hollywood Whispers", Movie Life, April 1972. Hollywood Whispers was a regular column in the magazine. However, since the columnist had interviewed Pete several times, this magazine's article on his death appeared in her column. From Thorne.
  321. Excerpt from "My Fair and Frantic Hollywood", 'TEEN, April 1972. Impressions from the last reporter to spend time with Pete. Even in 1972, the second paragraph of this is one of the most insightful things I've read about Pete's death.
  322. Excerpt from "Strictly Confidential", Motion Picture, April 1972.
  323. "The Tragic Story of Pete Duel", SPEC 16 Magazine, April 1972.

  327. "The Tragic Ending of a Young Life: Peter Duel 1940-1971", TV Star Parade, April 1972. Although it isn't obvious from the first sentence, this is probably one of the more thorough and balanced articles on Pete's death.
  328. Excerpt from "Gossip", TV and Movie Screen, April 1972. Not really gossip. Just a photo and caption.
  329. Excerpt from "A Hollywood Drama...In Two Acts", Photo Screen, April 1972. Essentially a photo and caption on Pete's death.

  332. "'We Can All Live...and Survive' Pete Duel's Last Interview, Right Before Dying...", Silver Screen, April 1972. One of Pete's last, if not the last, interview. The author writes as a friend, in a straightforward manner without over-analyzing.
  333. "Peter Duel: He Cared Too Much To Live...", Silver Screen, April 1972. This includes quotes from AS&J producer Jo Swerling, Jr.
  334. "Was It Guilt...Was It Liquor...Was It Love...Why Did Peter Duel Kill Himself", Modern Screen, April 1972.
  335. "The Shocking Truth About Peter Duel's Sudden Death!", Movie World, April 1972. I purchased this myself in early 1972.
  336. "The Last Days of Pete Duel", TV Radio Mirror, April 1972. More detailed than most other articles on Pete's death. However, this is the one that includes the disgusting Santa Claus ornament detail, which is probably "journalistic license".
  337. "His Anguished Plea for Help. His Last Letter", TV Radio Mirror, April 1972. A companion article to the one above.
  338. Excerpt from Candid Cameron Column, TV Radio Mirror, April 1972. Another companion article, an excerpt from Sue Cameron's Gossip Column. Note the lack of names. This includes the blender story.
  339. "Pete Duel, Otra Victima De Su Propio Triunfo", Lecturas, April 21, 1972. Sent by Ana. A Spanish article on Pete's death.
  340. "Pete Duel, Another Victim of His Own Success", Lecturas, April 21, 1972. Translation of above Spanish article, courtesy of the multi-talented Elaine.
  341. "'Alias Smith and Jones' Star Ben Murphy: I Was Shocked at What ABC-TV Did After Pete Duel's Death", National Enquirer, April 26, 1972. From Thorne and Beverly.
  342. Excerpt from "Hollywood Hotline", Tiger Beat Spectacular, April 1972. Short item on the author's impression of Pete, written after his death. Liz Dagucon is the young Phillipine woman who interviewed Pete for what became a Rona Barrett's Hollywood article.
  343. "Stop the Presses! Pete Duel Commits Suicide!", Rona Barrett's Hollywood, April 1972.
  344. "Pete Duel: Why?", Rona Barrett's Hollywood, May 1972. This is not what it appears to be. First, the interview was originally for Tiger Beat magazine, but was moved to Rona Barrett's Hollywood after Pete's death; both magazines were owned by the same company and shared office space. Second, this was not his last interview. Pete did at least four interviews after this. Third, it is not from December 1971, but rather late October or very early November 1971. This interview was before the Screen Actor's Guild election, which occurred the first week of November 1971. Also, note that Pete's sideburns in the photos are shorter than those he had when filming AS&J in December. Finally, keep in mind that this is written with the hindsight of Pete's death. The tone in which this was written might have been different if it was before Pete's death.
  345. Excerpt from "Rona Barrett's Hollywood" column, Rona Barrett's Hollywood, May 1972. Can we really trust anyone who says that Roger's [physical] resemblance to Pete is amazing?

  347. "Peter Duel: This Was His Life", TV Star Annual, Number 36, May 1972. The first 2 paragraphs are about Pete's death, but then it moves to his life. However, they have borrowed heavily from his TV Guide interview.
  348. "A Psychiatrist's In Depth Study: What Drove Pete Duel to Suicide!", Screen Life, May 1972. The psychiatrist wasn't actually studying Pete, they just quoted from his paper. This contains many quotes from Pete.
  349. "Ben: What Pete Meant to Me", flip, May 1972. There's no evidence in this that they actually talked to Ben.
  350. "The Story Behind Pete Duel's Tragic Death", TEEN Photo Album, May 1972.
  351. Excerpt from "Dear Rona", Rona Barrett's Hollywood, June 1972. Includes a photo of Pete on the AS&J set that was taken by the writer's family on the afternoon before his death.
  352. "Could I have Saved His Life?", Screen Parade, June 1972.
  353. "The Tragedy of Pete Duel", Photoplay (UK), 1972. Sent by Ana and by Pamela G.
  354. "Ben Murphy: Pete Gave His Life to Save Him From His Death Trip!", Photo Mirror, September 1972. The title makes no sense but there is some interesting text. AS&J's producers attempted to enlighten America about criminal rehabilitation reform!? Thanks to bryanne.
  355. "Forever Young: Pete Duel", Forever Young, date unknown. Paragraph on Pete's death. Sent by Thorne. 
  356. "Headlines That Rocked Hollywood! Peter Duel Commits Suicide!", Hollywood Secrets Yearbook, 1972. Short, but includes a nice photo of Pete.

  359. "Al Cumplirse Un Año De La Muerte De Pete Duel. Hoy, Primer Capitulo De ‘Los Dos Mosqueteros'", DoMingo, 31 Diciembre (1972), 4,00 "Tarde Para Todos". An article from Spain, which was sent by Ana. The pictures were dark in my photocopies. Where possible, they have been replaced with better versions of the same photos.
  360. "One Year After the Death of Pete Duel. Today, The First Chapter of 'Alias Smith and Jones'", Sunday December 31 (1972), 4:00 PM, "Afternoon for All". For the Spanish article listed above, this is the English translation. Translated by Jo.

  366. "Pete Duel--Too Much Too Soon", Woman's Own, June 29, 1974. Clipped from a UK magazine in the mid-70s magazine by Catherine. Probably the best-researched article on Pete's death, although it can be upsetting to read. The author, Fenton Bresler, is a UK barrister who writes non-fiction articles and books on famous deaths and crimes; he also writes legal advice columns for several websites.
  367. "Why Pete Duel Blew His Brains Out", Pageant, January 1975. From Asialee. Another version of the Fenton Bresler article. This article is very similar to Bresler's "Too Much Too Soon" article (above). In some places the Pageant article has expanded quotes, while in others the "Too Much Too Soon" article has more depth. The major difference is that the Pageant article includes the story of what happened when Bresler tried to talk with Ben Murphy about Pete.
  368. "Finally Told! The Tragic Truth Behind Pete Duel's Suicide", Silver Screen, July 1975. Similiar, except shorter and less thorough, than the Fenton Bresler articles.P
  369. "Peter Duel: Losing His Head", from the book TV Babylon by Jeff Rovin, 1984. All of the sections in the book have short, morbid titles like this one. The article is better than the title suggests. This is the American version of the book.
  370. Excerpts from Laughing on the Outside, Crying on the Inside: The Bittersweet Saga of the Sock-It-To-Me Girl, by Judy Carne, 1985, pp 191-193, 201-202. Includes 1971-72 items about Pete and Judy during the period of her guest-starring role in AS&J (not upbeat) and about Pete's death.
  371. "Alas Smith and Jones", TV Babylon, British version, 1997. An article on Pete's death that was sent by a UK fan. It also talks quite a bit about his life.
  372. "Dark Star", The Box, 1997. Article on Pete from a now-defunct British magazine. This is the version from the printed magazine, although the text was on The Box website in 1997-98. Interesting comments from Geoff Deuel. Unfortunately there are also numerous inaccurate statements, dubious insinuations, and some stuff that doesn't make sense. Why would Roger have been working on the AS&J set on Pete's last day? They must be wrong about this. No such statements were made in 1971-72 and, by December 31, Roger was in Denver doing a voice-overs for radio ads. This comes to us from Pamela G.
